Khorasani is the supreme commander of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) faction Jamaatul Ahrar.
“I can confirm that Omar Khalid Khorasani has been injured in a joint operation by the Afghan and Nato forces in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province,” spokesperson for the group, Ehsanullah Ehsan told The Express Tribune by phone.
